Forum: toronto Subject: Hello from Distributed Proofreaders

Hi there. I'm from Project Gutenberg's Distributed Proofreading team -- http://www.pgdp.net/ . I thought I'd let you know that over the next few months we're going to be working through the material in this collection, and processing it through our site to create ebooks which will eventually be added to the Project Gutenberg collection -- http://gutenberg.org/ .

You can see the thread on our forum which is coordinating this harvesting effort here -- http://www.pgdp.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=122795

I note that there are several incomplete sets of books in this archive (for example, the Works of Dumas is missing volume 5). Should we report these anywhere, and if so, where? We don't really want to work through incomplete sets.

gives the current status of our processing effort -- lines with a coloured background have been claimed by a DP project manager to process and move through the site. Incidentally, the linked page also provides a much more concise summary of the books available in this archive than any provided on this website.
